Key PointsQuestionDoes person-specific motor skill training in functional activities result in better short-term and long-term outcomes than strength and flexibility exercise in people with chronic, nonspecific low back pain? FindingsIn this randomized clinical trial of 149 participants, motor skill training reduced disability (modified Oswestry Disability Questionnaire scores) more than strength and flexibility exercise by 7.9 points after treatment, 5.6 points 6 months after treatment, and 5.7 points 12 months after treatment, all clinically important changes from baseline and significant differences between treatment groups. MeaningPerson-specific motor skill training in functional activities limited because of low back pain should be considered to improve limited function in people with chronic low back pain.
